Another Scrappy Peacock

Hi!

I mentioned in a previous post that instead of tidying my craft space, as I usually do each summer, I got sidetracked by some DSP, a peacock and my new Stamparatus. I used the Stamparatus to stamp the peacock, but I had so much fun that I decided to stamp it in backwards order.

What do I mean by backwards order? Well, usually you'd stamp the body, then the tail, then the flourishy bit, and finally the dots. To do it backwards, I simply started with the dots. It was fun seeing the image form that way.

One of the key benefits of the Stamparatus is that it stamps in exactly the same place, over and over again. In this case, the Pacific Point tail didn't stamp fully, so I was able to reink the stamp and try again. Yay! How many times have you stamped a sentiment that doesn't all stamp so you have to try to fix it, and it ends up blurry or looking worse than it did before you tried? No longer a problem!

There are a few cute little sequin type stamps in the Beautiful Peacock SAB set. It's sometimes easy to over look these. I used them on the front in the circles that were embossed using the Polka Dot Basics TIEF, and also on the inside to add some more colour.

Am I selling you on the Stamparatus yet? LOL

Bye for now,

Tina
